Austenland by Shannon Hale

By Shannon Hale

Jane is unlucky in love to say the least, after one failed relationship aft6er another she soon becomes obsessed with Mr. Darcy. When he great aunt passes away Jane receives an unexpected gift, the vacation of her dreams to Pembrook Park where she will be immersed in regency England. Jane decides to take the gift and purge her system of all of her Mr. Darcy fantasies hoping in doing so she will be able to finally move on and find a lasting love. What she doesn’t realize is the man of her dreams may not be Mr. Darcy but the love they share will be just as strong.

This was such a cute novel Shannon Hale did a wonderful job in recreating an Austen-esque setting with the right blend of modern influences. The ending was my absolute favorite as Jane is turned on her head with an unexpected revelation that is sure to leave you giggling. If you are a fan of Jane Austen and have also found yourself swooning at Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy then you will surely appreciate this book, if not then you may enjoy the witty dialog and the personal growth the character traverses. This is an absolutely wonderful contemporary romance novel.
